Marikana

05.12.2013

The SlashDogs are 5 piece rock n’ roll band from Johannesburg. They don’t give a f**k about conforming to the current rock sounds. Their music is down and dirty, whiskey soaked, sweaty and pure driven rock n’ roll. ‘Marikana’ is the first single from their upcoming album Progress Through Plunder, and was inspired by the brutal and tragic events that occurred at the Marikana mine in South Africa on the 16th August 2012 where police killed 42 striking workers.

Marikana can be downloaded from the bands website or via iTunes. All proceeds from this song will be donated to some of the families of the victims of the Marikana massacre.

    How exactly is it a cheap shot? Yeah sure, the corporate monolith that is The Slashdogs, manipulate the huge “alternative white-guy pity wave” ,(that is soooo prominent at the moment) in an attempt to get EVEN BIGGER than they already are. Please. Those miners have not recieved ONE cent in compensation from ANYWHERE. It not as if it’s a Danny K style media swoop of massive preportions . This is a street-level punk rock band that are doing something that probably wont even be noticed…yet they’ll give what they can get. What’s been your contribution to the cause Anonymous?
